Yup. For the next 2 years.
Same company same job. Going to be looking after a bridge project on the N Slope.
Boat is tucked away in WA at the house.
Too bad I didn't hold out longer. Might have had a job fixin a bridge over the Skagit!
With the boat left behind came out one morning and found a Winnebago humpin my truck!

That's awesome and I'm sure being up there is a great experience. Alaska is definitely a frontier! I'll be up towards the end of June to do some fly fishing in the Katmai National Park (just outside King Salmon, AK). Fishing for 6 solid days.....can't wait!

Enjoy your time up there.

We had a darn good lake weekend. I skied sunday, sped the boat up to 32, ran all 6 on my 15' off - last attempt (after alot of frustrating 5s)... I also arranged to have another member out who is disabled and with the help of a few other great MSC members, we got her skiing too.

After that, it was skiing and boating on the Brazos, where I ran into Snork... He's such a great wakeboarder!

Thanks man. I realized late last year that not only was she a ski club member, but she generally only got out during our adaptive clinics... So I made it a point to get her out to enjoy the lake more. We almost almost got her son up on 2 skis sunday as well, we just need a few more attempts and he'll have it.

Water temp is still around 55 deg here in NW Iowa. Bites. Forecast for next 10 days is mostly in the upper 60's - low 70's.
